You'll find the "Sacred Cows" come in handy then!
Look for a credit card? Not in this country. As for the dole, unemployment insurance is one thing as long as it provides for the essentials of life and no more.

The problems start with universal benefits such as the state age related benefit aka the old age pension, that should be means tested.

Then all the supplementary benefits that in reality redistribute earnings.

Add child care allowance, housing support, that means people like me are paying a significant part of other people's rents - and so very much more.

A real herd of sacred cows that really does need culling.

I'd start, then, with an old "bull" like yourself.

Was that really necessary?

I never understood why some people "play the player, not the ball".

Re: Minister caught out in yet another lie !!!

if the contracts are not given to private companies, what then? they go to foreign countries at the cost of UK jobs being lost.

I have to express some surprise that U Joe would rather let that happen.

There are liars in the Labour party too example.....
Shadow cabinet member Richard Burgon has said he regrets having said Zionism is the "enemy of peace".

The Labour MP denied making the remark in a BBC interview last year, but he has now admitted doing so after footage emerged of him saying it.

..but thankfully for the majority of us not everyone spends their days looking for liars to moan about and posting about them every time they find one
